    Sergeant Stubby, American war hero dog

    "The noise and strain that shattered the nerves of many of his comrades did not impair Stubby's spirits. Not because he was unconscious of danger. His angry howl while a battle raged and his mad canter from one part of the lines to another indicated realization."

    Badass of the Week: Sergeant Stubby the War Dog

    Sergeant Stubby (1916 or 1917 April 4, 1926), was the most decorated war dog of World War I and the only dog to be promoted to sergeant through combat. America's first war dog, Stubby, served 18 months 'over there' and participated in seventeen battles on the Western Front. He saved his regiment from surprise mustard gas attacks, found and comforted the wounded, and even once caught a German spy by the seat of his pants. Back home his exploits were front page news of every major newspaper.

    Sadly, pits are so vilified now that many cities have made ownership illegal and several insurance companies either charge more for homeowners insurance or won't write coverage at all if you have a certain breeds of dog. Pit bulls are at the top of the list as other large/giant breeds. Statistically, the dog that bites the most is the dachshund, followed by other ankle bitter types.
